Pillai Bests Baker


David Baker opened to 2,600 from the cutoff, Shankar Pillai three-bet to 6,200 on the button, and Baker four-bet to 16,100. Pillai tank-called.

The dealer fanned {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and both players checked. The {9-Spades} turned, and Baker led for 18,200. Pillai called.

The river was the {4-Clubs}, Baker checked, and Pillai tossed out 22,700. Baker looked unhappy, but made the call anyway. Pillai rolled over two black kings, Baker mucked, and Pillai pulled in the pot.
